Draw or modify a heightmap with the heightmap tools. Get real world heightmaps from real locations. Specify the map elevation and orientation and generate an isometric 3D map. Style the map surface with editable gradient presets, seamless textures, Contour Lines tool, Water Level tool and EFX brushes. Change the map height, style the background, determine the Map lighting, place high quality isometric map icons from the icons library. Load your own icons into the library. Create professional 3D terrains with just a couple of clicks. All with one tool and a few clicks in Photoshop!
A heightmap or heightfield is a raster image used to store values, such as surface elevation data, for display in 3D computer graphics.
A heightmap contains one channel interpreted as a distance of displacement or “height” from the “floor” of a surface and sometimes visualized as luma of a grayscale image, with black representing minimum height and white representing maximum height.
Create your own Heightmap
To create a terrain with the 3D Map Generator a grayscale heightmap is required. That can be existing height maps from outside sources, with the plugin created heightmaps or real world locations from Tangram Heightmapper.
For creating your own heightmap there are extensive tools available in the panel. With Random Heights you can create basic heightmap that can be edited further for example by using the 20 heightmap brushes. Therefor the Height Color tool could be very helpful to follow defined heights
Get a Heightmap from the Heightmapper Viewer
With the Heightmapper there is a powerful heightmap viewer available. It allows you to find real world locations as heightmaps and easily export them to Photoshop. Of course there are also other heightmap viewer on the web – take a look at the resource link list in the instructions PDF. The 3D terrains created from the heightmaps can also be textured with – for example – Google textures or Open Streetmaps. The results are really stunning!
The surface of the 3D terrain map can be edited further with the different gradient presets, seamless textures, and the texturing and effect brushes. Of course even own textures can be embedded easily.
You can generate real contour lines with various spacing freely selectable colors.
Simulate the groundwater level or sea level. With every click the water level will rise for 1 pixel until it reaches the desired height. Unlimited.
There are many presets available to design a great map.
69 basic isometric icons and elements can be placed on the map with one click in most of the applications. The icon size slider makes it easy to transform them consistently. But you can also easily load your own icons (PSD, PNG) into the library. That makes designing even more comfortable!
